Happy Friday! Anyone have any luck finding and studio / 1 bed in Manhattan recently? My budget is up at $2300 / month but I have to compete with so many applications for the same apartment. How have you managed it? UES is all that's available rn pretty much

If you’re willing to get a roommate you could get a really nice place with good amenities with that budget.
You definitely won’t be able to get a 1 bed at that price, and a studio probably won’t be the best quality

At that price? No chance

To close the loop I ended up signing for a studio with a garden view by 96th St Q train. $2200 no fee - excited to move in this weekend! So it's doable to get a studio at this price just takes some tries

That’s great!

Thanks for the sanity check

I’m working a Principal TPM for a FinTech firm offering digital payments platform. I have 10+ YOE and recently got MBA.
